Here is a nice lobby card, posted on Vintage Ads, for the 1934 film, It Happened One Night. A fun movie, it is the story of a runaway heiress being accompanied by a (unknown to her) reporter after the story of her running away. There are some great scenes relating to intercity bus travel, complete with stops at tourist courts.

Happy Valentine's Day from Ms. Toby Wing, whom I found in an old Film Noir Photos post. In honor of the holiday, I'll be doing a Valentine/Malentine Special on the Swing Shift Shuffle tonight. While most of the songs will be romantic, each set will feature a "Malentine," for those who are less enamored of February 14. Hope you tune in.

This post on the Hemmings blog discusses the importance of accessories; specifically - period correct clothing to go with your vintage car. The post has several references to resources for those interested in vintage clothing, regardless of whether that interest relates to automobiles or not. One interesting point to me was that the desire for a "complete package" can run both ways. While many folks may become interested in vintage clothing as an accessory to their vintage car, there are some, like the couple pictured here, who acquired their vintage car as an accessory to their vintage clothes.

With the 2018 Winter Olympics now in progress, this 1945 Walt Disney animated short seemed appropriate. It reminds me of the old question: "Did you ever go to a fight and have a hockey game break out?" Posted on YouTube, here is Hockey Homicide.
